Nay Pyi Taw, 11 April— The Ledi Buddhist meditation centre in the township of Uttarathiri in the Nay Pyi Taw Council Area opened a seven-day meditation retreat on Saturday.
The opening ceremony was graced by members of the Sangha led by Kalawa Retreat Sayadaw Bhaddanta Jagarabhivamsa.
Union Minister at the President’s Office U Thein Nyunt, local authorities and meditation practitioners, paid homage to the Sayadaw and monks.
Following a sermon delivered by the Sayadaw, the monks recited parittas (religious verses).
The officials presented offertories to the Sayadaw and monks, which brought the ceremony to an end.
The week-long meditation retreat has drawn 281 meditation sitters from the council area and nearby villages.
The meditation centre, established in April 2012, can house up to 300 meditaters and provide accommodations and foods donated by wellwishers.
The next meditation retreat is scheduled from 18 to 24 April.  MNA
